The only thing I really know of that I got completely free (no need to do anything previous/after receipt of the item in order to get it, besides ask) was a copy of Half Life 2 on Steam gifted to me by a generous GB user who's name I've long since forgotten. Edit: oh oh also a Too Human pre-order armor code, again I forget who gave that to me. Long-ass time ago. Thanks again guys, if you remember who you are, lol.

I also got the game Viva Pinata free from Microsoft because I sent in my broken 360 and they sent me back another broken 360. I complained about it so they gave me the game to shut me up.

That's exactly what I thought of when I saw the title of this thread.  Life.

A lot of things but nothing really interesting. I did get a LOT of condoms though when I joined a few societies in my college. I doubt I'll ever need them but even so I normally carry one around with me anyway.

This too. I wish I could remember of the name of the user that gave us copies of HL2.
#35 Posted by AndrewB (7452 posts) -

I've gotten a bunch of free games and even a Gameboy Advance SP for free at my old job. It was lost and found that was never picked up. The games are mostly crap, though. Brain Age and some Spongebob Squarepants DS game, some Army Men game, Pac Man game, and a second Pokemon Sapphire for the GBA.
 
I also got a $700+ camcorder, but the thing has no dock, and the dock isn't sold anymore, and because the thing doesn't just have a usb port for getting data off of it, I have no means of actually using anything I record with it. Bummer.
 
If you count birthday and Christmas presents, lots more.

#39 Posted by SBYM (1219 posts) -

Over the years, for reasons I can't quite figure out, I began getting free subscriptions to random magazines. Most notably Interview (which I hadn't even heard of until the issues began showing up in the mailbox), Seventeen (dude, what?), and Rolling Stone for about 6 years straight. To this day, I have absolutely no idea why or how I ended up having these sent to me. Baffling.

nothing is free 
 
everything costs something, because anything you do or get means you have to forego something else (opportunity cost ftl)  
 
oh, and sex cuz im married

#42 Edited by BlazeHedgehog (1082 posts) -
Sonic Unleashed and Sonic Chronicles were free because they were "review copies" bought by my editor and given to me.
 
Project Gotham Racing 3 was for free because Microsoft screwed up repairing my Xbox 360 and that game was compensation.
 
Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories was free from SaySwap and Shadow the Hedgehog was free from Goozex. Both were using points you get as a sign-up bonus. I still haven't played Chain of Memories, and that was two years ago at least. 
 
Jak & Daxter, Ratchet & Clank, and Shadow of the Colossus were free from Sony's Retail Loyalty Site back when they offered games for free instead of just discounts.

The newest Tomb Raider, they gave me the Xbox which had it packaged in for the same price as a normal one.
Then I also got the collectors edition of Fable 2, for the same price as the normal.

If we're not counting birthday or other holiday related gifts, then I got a few DVDs I won from my school's bingo events. Two seasons of Robot Chicken, The Simpsons Movie, and something else I'm forgetting.

when I was younger someone gave me their entire  star wars figure collection in a darth vader carry case.... it has slots for all the empire figures released.... it was full 
I was also give tthe at-at aswell... but as kids do...i buried all of those figures in the garden and crushed and broke them all and snapped the legs off of the at-at because i felt it was better as a puppet (you could move the head about from the inside)
